  • To encourage student reporting of COVID-19 concerns, the Office of the Dean of Students has made an addition to its Responsible Action Protocol. The office will not bring Student Conduct Code action against students or student groups based on information they provide when reporting their own or others' symptoms, cooperating with contact tracing via the Corona Corps or Lane County Public Health, or about people following isolation or quarantine recommendations.
  • There's currently an estimated 79% chance that a gathering of 100 people will include at least one person with COVID-19 in Lane County. The risk reduces to 32% in a group of 25, and 14% in a group of 10. The more people you've been in contact with this week, the higher your risk.
  • The UO is expanding its COVID-19 surveillance testing to offer free voluntary tests to more students, faculty, staff, and community members. Watch for emails about testing events.
